We Run This Dystopia…


In the future what will the people riot for? Good music? Healthy food?

Nah, it’ll be women.

If China is any indicator of the shit we will be into 100 years from now, and I believe they are because they had their own industrial revolution in 1 A.D., we will be rioting in the streets for access to women. That is the message I take from the new Jay-Z music video for the single ‘We Run This Town’.

As far as futuristic post-urban dystopias are concerned I have to give props to 2Pac’s ‘California Love‘ over the ‘Run This Town’ video and you know that I don’t even fux with 2Pac like that. Firstly, 2Pac had broads in his video while Jay-Z’s only has shirtless boys holding flaming sticks [ll]. Forget the fact that Jay-Z’s lyrics say that “We got a banquette full of broads, they got a table full of fellas”.

No sir, you have a video full of dudes.


A few folks on the TWitter have made a correlation between the ‘Run This Town’ and ‘California Love’ videos, and the mother(literally) of all future apocalyptic scenes – Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome will always be the G.O.A.T. Thanks to TINA TURNER aka Auntie EnTity(emphasis on the titty – see what I just did?). Maybe when RIHANNA turns 50yrs old and she is still as beatable (no Chris Brown) as TINA was I might have to reconsider.

tina - rihanna

From fishsticks to flaming sticks, KanYe West and Jay-Z have this music video shit onSmash(yeah, I did that).

You can’t deny that these are the dudes that you want to be in the future.

Mainly because they are the only ones who have access to the sweet vajj.

    So, when Jay said he wanted to make “grown man” music, he meant he wanted to make “grown MAN” music. Got it.

    Oh shit you had me laughin too hard with that line…Damn the irony

  • latino heat

    am i the only one that agrees that if Rhianna is gonna walk around with the same hairdo as Prince that she should have to rock his assless chaps too?

    Thats the first time that I’ve seen that video…you right DP, California Love blows that out the water.

    Jay-Z look funny as hell in the video, but then again whats new?

    Kanye look like he was about to break down into a Bobby Brown dance set the way he was moving around. His flow was better than Jay-Z’s though.

    Rihanna will still get the business as long as she ain’t wearing them Mortal-Kombat glasses.

    The beat is tight at least…

  • tronthadon

    The Gay Fish musta directed this video…kinda lame but Rihana thigs look good i see what ur talkin bout Monty B..and Jay knew Gay Fish whole damn verse he must knew he killed him too

  • OG Matt Herbz

    Yeah, but Jay has “The Broad” in his video: Rihanna. All the other females would have fallen short…even Nada Hoe Shakur.

    I like how they catered the video to Rihanna’s look, too. Kanye and Jay threw on some type garments for the video that Rihanna blesses on the daily. I know y’all seen the nude photos. She’s weird…but I like that.

    Dallas Penn, whaddup!

    I have access to some pretty sweet vajj, myself; guilt-free & disease-less!

    The video is cool, but I been fuxing with hip hop for 33 years (all my life). The videos don’t move me like they used to.
    I don’t think well be fighting over broads though. They’ll be returned back to the subserviant roles they had back in biblical days, like chattle. Thats why there’s none in the video.

    We’ll be going to war over music, ha! & food.

  • capcobra

    jay lip sync every word of kanye’s verse..is that considered swag jacking?…lol…they could’ve edit it out but they didn’t..almost the same way jay didn’t edit ghost borrowing slick rick jewelry on fade to black.

  • http://xxl All Dae

    The video was a bit strange. I didn’t get any meaning from it other than Jay-Z Rhianna and Kanye will run the post apocolypse world using raps and street wit..lol.

    Rhianna is georgeous…I’ll eat here little ass from behind any time. That lil mama is foxy. Rhianna should rock assless chaps…I’d fuck her with no rubber.

    I do see the parallels to the end times and total chaos fighting over dwindling resources.
    Yall heads need to check out Mutant Chronicles it direct to dvd but dope and touches on the end days theme.

    Dallas penn, what it is, pimp daddy? you already know i’m stoned out on that good shit. and what’s happening to all the commenters. more people need to start commenting. these shits used to get like a 100 comments. i like to see niggas chopping it up (no homo).

    there were other chicks in the video, they just had masks on. shame on those who can’t tell the difference b/w the sexes when their face hath be covered.

    og’s right, although her voice is obnoxious, her look fit the video nicely.

    just because jay used a metaphor that likened his position in life to having a table full of women in one bar of the song, i think the director of the video decided to go with a different theme for this one.

    and sky’s right, ‘ye is looking like a broke subzero, but at the same time, it’s the most gangsta that nigga ever done looked, almost makes me a fan… but then i remember that he’s a fag (even though his verse was the best of the 3. i’d damn near say he killed it, even).

  • geico lizard

    i think most of the vaj will be disease ridden so we wont fight over that in the future. we will just find one with the non life threatening diseases and marry her. the young girls are posting cell phone videos and pics online so they are stepping up their slore game to new levels. by the time they are 30 years old they will need clothespins to keep their loose pussies shut.

    sugar or clean water will be more likely things to fight for in the future because we could face a shortage of both.

    • latino heat

      sad but true. i have to co-sign Geico Lizard to the fullest. most girls under 21 have had a std already. these ho’s have no respect for themselves these days. they fuck damn near anybody. you might be surprised (or not) at how easily you can talk one of these ho’s into getting a train ran on her.

  • Avenger XL

    Why do bloggers just tend to give us rambling posts toward the end of the week? I blame it on the AAAA ACCAHol or maybe the TI’s needing a writing quota to keep said job lest you go the way of mr cocaine blunts but I digress.

    Also the communist governemnt of china caused that shortage of vajj in their country. They had the policy of limited families to one child and many people aborted their girls because they wanted the one child to be a boy so that he could get a job and support the family. Also being in isolation and lower the genetic variety didn’t help much either LOL

    Right now in the U.S. the number of chicks to guys are almost three to one and growing. So if you can’t get any Vajj here it is because you are just lame(sans game).

    Also jigga needed to cast more broads in this video though Rhianna looked quite beatabe (no chris “boogty beatdown” brown) in here outfit.

  • Brooklyn

    i don’t think we’ll be rioting in the streets for women 100 years from now, by then they’ll have started making bitches in laboratories with all the things a nigga could possibly want. either that or they’ll be mad robot pussy to get at, rosie from the jetsons could get it, she had a fat ass.

  • Jimmy Wulf

    This video was actually was throwback to the 90′s per what Dallas said. I like the tribute to California Love and Mad Max; giving it a newer falvor. Jay’s camel lips are mouthing Kanye’s verse, because little brother Kanye destroys/ethers/kills him on his own track. This should be a sad day for Jay, a perennial ALL-STAR in this rap industry, who has been destroyed by his protege, Kanye. Jay wouldn’t allow Kanye to rap back in the day, as he was pigeonholed as a producer; wow looks like that came to bite Jay in the ass-no homo.


  • Jimmy Wulf

    I apologize for the typos niggasss.. This video was actually a throwback. Newer Flavor. AND ONCE AGAIN MODERN WARFARE….BUBBLEWRAPMIAMI.COM-WE RUN THIS

      “most girls under 21 have had a std already”
      ^^^& an abortion or three. Sad state of affairs.


      The “Fuck The Commission” shit is out of style, my dude. But on another note, I checked out Bubblewrapmiami. Thats a, ummm, unique name for a site, assuming you have some ownership to it as you seem to. But, one question; what’s up with all the articles about masturbation & teenage sex?

      • Capital G

        T.- I’m not even sure how the commission started or why dude’s hate for the sake of hating on those involved. Like it’s bangin’ on the net or some shit. Bubblewrap is some strange shit, what the fuck does that have to do with XXl or the Commission? Lil help here…

          Crabs in a barrel mentality x pathetic self loathing ÷ unforgiving lonliness = lame duck introverts with nothing better to do than waste time & wait for death’s sweet release…

          Problem with simpleton retards like him is that WE ARE ALL “THE COMMISSION”! XXL commentors are Commission, but these testicle-festival refugees stay throwing rocks @ a mirror.
          Too stupid to see themselves.

          Sometimes, I just like kicking their wheelchairs, though. A nigga gets bored……ha!
